10 Last Minute Xmas Presents

If you are a last minute person like me, who realised just now that Christmas is just a couple of days away, worries not, I have put together a list of last-minute presents idea for design lovers like me.

Living in a big city like London is great, but shopping in the city centre can be a bit overwhelming (especially when you’re are 9 months preggy) so my solution is always to look at online sites…and even if they’ll arrive a bit late, I’m sure that who’ll receive will appreciate it.

So here we are here’s my 10 selection from LOVEtheSIGN (and a special discount code included below…).

Our Black & White Kitchen Mood-board

So, our kitchen is almost done, but before I can share some photos with you (the sockets still need to be placed, so I am holding on before taking some nice photos…) I would like to share a mood board.

As I mentioned on my previous post the room is facing North, so it used to be quite a dark space (not anymore hehe), that’s also why we decided to go for a full white. We fell in love with those anthracite IKEA door handles (HACKÅS Handle), to break a bit the uniformity, and so the B&W theme came together pretty easily. I think is always good even before planning to have some clear idea of what the big picture should look like, so here it is mine:

10 Best Alarm Clock (New Year Resolution)

Hello everyone and Happy new year! I hope you had a lovely start, I disappeared a bit from social media and the blog, as I was spending some lovely time both in Ireland and Italy. It’s been one of the longest Xmas holidays I had in ages and I really enjoyed that!

This year resolution will be just one, and I’ll have to try and stick to it: switch off from the phone a bit more (travelling to a place without a good internet connection of wifi made me realize how addicted I am to it…). So as soon as we got home my lovely husband suggested starting by keeping the phones away from the bedroom and getting an old style Alarm Clock.

Now that might sound funny but it’s hard to still find alarm clocks in shops as everyone is using mobiles phones, and especially to find nice design ones…. but with a little research here’s my top 10 alarm clock list:

The Apartment by The Line | NYC

Last week I was in NY for a work trip and as soon as I got a few hours free on the weekend, I visited this amazing concept store in Soho.

While the entrance could be a bit intimidating (the lift from the road is a bit like: ‘Where the hell am I going?’), once you get at the 3rd floor you’re catapulted into the most beautiful light-filled open-air apartment in the heart of SoHo.

Welcome Home and New Discoveries

After being on holiday for a week, I’m back in a sunny London full of energy! Sometimes a little break is what you need!!!

And what’s better than discovering that there’s a new kid in town? Yes, because ARKET just opened a shop on Regent’s Street

The Scandinavian brand from the H&M group is a ‘modern day market that offers essential products for men, women children and the home. ARKET in Swedish means ‘sheet of paper’ and it alludes to concepts like Archive, Archetypes, Market. Sustainability is also one of the main values of the company,  from the materials sources to the making process.
